What’s New In Glaucoma Surgery [PPT Slides and Videos]


What do I consider the most promising? Interestingly
enough, this is something that was just presented at a conference a month ago and I do
you think this is the most promising of the
minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries and its FDA approved and
it’s essentially Canaloplasty but with
a really elegant twist. Whereas Canaloplasty in the traditional method that it’s been performed
using Dr. Stegmann’s approach, requires making an external incision (a flap) and is a very
long tedious surgery. And one of the reasons why it’s not taken off (even though it works
as well as it does). It’s not taken off because it just takes too long to do. Ab-Interno Canaloplasty
or minimally invasive Canaloplasty surgery, does all of the things that Canaloplasty does
with the exception of leaving the prolene suture in the canal. So you get Trabecular
Meshwork treated – an openings created with ab-interno. Schlemm’s canal is dilated. Collector
channel systems are also re-opened. You get better aqueous outflow and for those who are
worried about leaving things in the eye, even if it’s just a prolene suture (and I do have patients
who don’t want
the
prolene suture) I” say, “I think
it works better if you stent it open”, and they say, “I don’t want
it in the eye. I want nothing in the
eye.” This is going to be a really great option.
